FEDRIGONI 365 | CALENDAR 2022 | DESIGN COMPENDIUM
Following Agathe and Tomi's five previous contributions to the Fedrigoni 365 calendars in 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021 by Italian paper company Fedrigoni, FL@33 was kindly included for a fifth year running, possibly as the only invited contributor to all five calendars so far (tbc).
___ FL@33's Tomi Vollauschek contributed a typographic experiment of the allocated number 19 (June).
___ Many hundreds of contributions by artists, designers and studios form once again the beautifully designed and produced calendar and design compendium Fedrigoni 365 (2022).
FL@33 CONTRIBUTION | 19 June 2022
As printed in the publication: The Roman numeral for 19 is XIX – a rather beautifully symmetric typography gem to play with. Given that XIX consists of three elements, FL@33's Tomi Vollauschek projected the letterforms into a white corner of a room to explore the spatial qualities of the distorted shapes across three surfaces.
___ The intriguing results are funnily enough in a similar vein to the cover treatment shown here and the way FL@33 is printed on this customised and numbered slipcase.
Fedrigoni 365, designed by TM for Fedrigoni UK, started five years ago as an unprecedented collaboration involving designers, illustrators and photographers from throughout the UK, gathered together by an open call for entries.
___ Now in its fifth year, the book has once again managed to pull together hundreds of creative masterminds. Previous editions of the publication have put the spotlight on select stocks from Fedrigoni’s vast range of papers, from an entirely black book in 2018 to an entirely white edition in 2019, followed by a recycled rainbow of colours in 2020 and a digitally randomised explosion of colours in 2021.
___ The 2022 copy that was assigned to FL@33 and that prominently features our name on the publication's slipcase is number 0170.
